    T-Mobile 9700 users reporting OTA upgrade to 5.0.0.714



    It seems that T-Mobile has begun pushing an OTA upgrade for certain BlackBerry Bold 9700 users to OS 5.0.0.714. Keep in mind that this will only work for you if you are running the latest official OS from T-Mobile which is currently 5.0.0.586. Some pretty nice new to all you T-Mobile users. If your running the latest T-Mobile official OS, take a look and let us know if the upgrade is working for you. Hopefully an .exe will be available in the near future.

    Not yet available for this die-hard T-Mobile customer.

    soooo

    How would I go about getting this?

    Just load 586 on to my 9700 and then what?

    I'm not a BIS customer I'm on tzones if that makes a difference.

    Is there a menu where u can hit upgrade or check for updates or something?

    Waiting

    It took a few days before I got the notice from Tmo on .586 after it was released. I will wait a few more days to see if I get it. If it is a bogus release, i will go with .656.

    If this .714 is real (and I suspect it is), please be aware that the platform it rides on is the same .586 platform they've already released. This tells me that they've taken .586 and corrected a couple of bugs. Minor stuff.

    There is really no reason to go to .656. The new .680 is out and I'd recommend that if you feel inclined to take the time to do an OS change. So far, the real difference I can see is a small battery advantage with .680. In essence, all these 5.0.0.5xx and 5.0.0.6xx OS releases are "much ado about nothing" IMHO.

    The real game changer will probably be 6.0 and that is scheduled to be out in the summer.

    Wireless is correct. If it's the same radio file, your results will not be much different. Basically a hybrid.
